needs in missouri? would you work with the general assembly on a plan for a tax increase to raise revenue for transportation? would you help provide the leadership in pushing for a vote to raise needed revenue for transportation? >> well, we need to make better use of the tax dollars with god. i don't, you know, i guess there was a plan to expand on 70 and expand the interchanges and put in toll roads, turnout over to contractors and let them run it. i'm not sure that's the thing we should do first, you know, we have to maintain the roads we've got an obviously maintain the bridge is. but you know, keep the tax, the gas tax the way it is now and make more efficient use of the money we've got. maybe contract out more, more things. if you give the contractors a bonus for finishing early, that seems to work. so things like that we would do. >> jay nixon. >> thank you. we have a long history in this area and our state. we have a very large system. so as i came in, with the doing a couple things and are now in the process of implementing a sumo foer. the first was to expand the capacit
. the other thing i have to say as he spent tax money running and not in pakistan on the internet when he said not name of the art display a crucifix. to me it is appalling that our president goes around apologizing for the u.s. and doesn't defend things happening here. >> host: nicholas burns >> guest: thank you for your question. i'm just trying to be objective here. ioc president obama apologizing for very much. i think this charge she apologizes excessively is wrong. i listened carefully to the speech yesterday and i listened carefully to his remarks two weeks ago when our embassies were attacked. he didn't apologize in that video. but he simply stated this almost every american agrees. that is a vile and hateful video in american have been built on religious tolerance. as we've been all abuzz since the founding fathers brought this republic into being. we believe that muslims not to be free as christians and jewish and hindu's to practice their religion. that's all the president was saying. i thought he might be nice value, but was not apologizing for what he did. i would say this, i thin
